Drat. Another day in the office.

These first two pics show Hughes 500D ZK-HUW (c/n 128-0415D) of Mount Hutt Helicopters, still in Coastwide Helicopters markings, at the Mount Potts high altitude weather station with the NIWA team carrying out urgent repairs.
Lower view is at the Upper Rakaia site with the wind starting to pick up (snow blowing off the tops).
It was Tim's turn to do the driving today.


  1. The old girl is still looking pretty! I think she's cracked 18000 hrs.

  2. Yeah was gonna say she looks good after the dulux overhaul!!!

  3. Nothing Dulux about that refurb....
